Darkside, The Future of App-Enabled Driving

    In this electronic age, we are determined to prove that an electric motor can capture the thrill of speed.

    We built Darkside for those who would rather lead than follow.

    This machine tops out at 14 MPH – faster than you can run. Equip Darkside with grip tires for off-road traction or remove them to drift on smooth surfaces. Powered by Bluetooth Smart, this robot features a 30-metre range and over an hour of drive-time on a single charge. And this app gives you the power to control everything about Darkside – speed, acceleration, turn radius, and glowing LED colours.


    - Colour: Make Darkside your own by customizing the glowing LED colour – or pick a flashing LED colour pattern.
    - Demo Mode: Darkside gives you a short demonstration of its abilities – stand back!
    - Drifting: Drift Mode has been rebuilt and refined to give you even more control when you're out of control.
    - Video: Check out featured videos and videos from other Darkside and Ollie owners – then make better ones.
    - Idle Animations: After a period of inactivity, Darkside gets a mind of its own. You have been warned.
    - Darkside Mode: For use with Darkside – Darkside Mode simply can't be described in words.

    Launch the app, then touch your Bluetooth Smart enabled device to your Darkside. Follow the on-screen tutorials and learn the basics of how to aim and drive your Darkside. Driving like a pro takes a little patience, but so does anything else worth doing.

    Tackle the toughest terrain with total confidence.Darkside's polycarbonate shell protects the electric motor, while the cutting-edge design repels water. This rough-and-tumble robot is built to take on anything that stands in the way.

    Darkside is an electrically propelled computer with onboard intelligence that gives you real-time feedback on tricks. You can also program Darkside using the Sphero MacroLab app. If you leave this robot idle for too long, it may get a mind of its own.

    Swipe, tap, or hold the gesture pad to make Darkside perform different tricks. With hundreds of trick combos to discover and master, you'll constantly be challenged to push your skills.

    You have the power to adjust Darkside's speed, handling and acceleration. With the option to use Drift Wheels or Grip Tires, you control your driving experience from start to finish.

    Your app experience will change depending on whether you have Ollie or Darkside.
